I guess that I'm a terrible, terrible person for telling my critters that I'm going to kill them or beat them to death. Some times I even chase my cats out of the kitchen and make them go upstairs and stay for a while. I even keep a spray bottle around just for squirting the cats. Oh and I have 3 inside cats and only two litter boxes for them. Both of those are upstairs right next to each other.
They are however in a seperate room from the cat fountain.
I think the OP THOUGHT he was being funny but I found it more sarcastic than humourous. I too believe he is a troll. They come to post just for reactions.
Having your pets test your patience and threatening to strangle/kill them are 2 different things. When his child tests his patience will he threaten to kill the child too? Chasing cats out of a room is sometimes necessary for safety reasons, i.e., hot stove while cooking, etc. Spraying cats with water is nasty and dangerous. If water should get in their ears they can get a serious infection. If your cats don't mind 2 boxes to share amongst the 3 of them that's not an issue. I would hope they are scooped at least twice a day though.
This poster IMO came here for a reaction and that's what he got - both good and bad.
